I have a Mac running OS X 10.5 that has a Windows XP boot camp partition that will no longer boots and is throwing me input/output errors when I attempt to view the Bootcamp partition in Terminal. My first priority is backing up everything off this partition.
What are some methods I can use to copy over the files to an external disk? I'm looking for something that will hop over the io errors and grab as much as possible.
Basically, I can boot into the Mac OS X without problem and the Bootcamp partition appears. However, browsing the Bootcamp partition in Finder or viewing the files in Terminal is slow and problematic (io errors). Any advice on getting those files out as quickly as possible is appreciated.
